"I feel like I've earned my wrinkles, and I'm very proud of everything that I've gone through in life -- both good and bad," she shared. "I don't want to be 26, I would never want to go back there, ever. I think what we want to do is look our best as we age gracefully."
Paltrow also shared her secret to looking so good in a makeup-free selfie. "My skincare routine has been my complete Goop skincare regimen along with exercise," she explained. "I try to have good nutrition -- I also believe in vodka and red wine and cheese and stuff -- it's all about the balance."
